CFA Voysey is regarded as one of the pioneers of the Modern movement of architecture and design, and one of the most influential and important of all the 19th and early 20th century British designers. CFA Voysey is regarded as one of the pioneers of the Modern movement of architecture and design, and one of the most influential and important of all the 19th and early 20th century British designers. He designed over 60 houses throughout England, from small cottages and gate lodges to suburban houses and substantial country house commissions. Voysey was the 'complete designer'; he designed all manner of objects, from wallpaper to cutlery, textiles to furniture, war memorials to stained glass windows, and bookplates. As a leading figure of the Arts and Crafts movement in Britain his fame and influence extended to the United States to the next generation of American Arts and Crafts architects and early Modernists, notably Greene and Greene, Bernard Maybeck and Frank Lloyd Wright. In Europe, fundamental aspects of Voysey's design approach were embraced by the Dutch De Stijl group; during the 1920s, and eventually also by the German Bauhaus movement. SELLING POINTS: - CFA Voysey was one of the first people to understand and appreciate the significance of industrial design - Voysey's designs in the field of applied art included furniture, wallpapers, fabrics, carpets, tiles, metalwork, ceramics and graphic design. Sometimes he designed bespoke artefacts for his own buildings, and sometimes he sold designs to manufacturers for wider use
